I am sorry for the trouble, but I thought this was the idea?

With rst, I always have to compile the document to HTML to see if
I messed up the formatting (`hyper <link>`_, verbatim follows::).
The markdown format allows composing the text without compilation.

The hope is that anybody can contribute, without needing sphinx or pandoc.
